About
Established in 1959, Covert Farms Family Estate Winery is located in Oliver, BC on 650 acres of benchland. Winemaker Gene Covert is a 3rd generation farmer who worked this land with his father and grandfather. Our certified organic estate vineyards are influenced by the majestic McIntyre Bluff and managed with biodynamic practices. We craft our estate wines with minimal intervention, using natural fermentation when possible to focus on vineyard and fruit. Our white wines display purity of fruit and a crisp natural acidity coveted by growers, and low yields result in terroir-focused artisan reds that are luscious and age-worthy. Those who love recreation dually appreciate our location at the gateway to the iconic Okanagan landmark McIntyre Bluff, which makes a great place to picnic, bike ride or hike. Secrest Organics at Covert Farms operates our seasonal fruit & vegetable stand, and visitors can get their hands dirty in the u-pick section - selecting ripe produce under the summer sun.

Best family oriented winery by a mile!
Aug 2021 • Family
This place is a fantastic experience from start to finish. The staff are knowledgeable and very kind. In the summer they offer farm tours for the kids and live music on certain days. It has a community feel to the farm, kids can use the slip and slide or the bouncy pillow while parents enjoy a tasting. They also offer picnic or charcuterie experiences which I highly recommend. Their charcuterie boards are lovely and perfect presentation. I highly recommend this winery and will be back again!

Wish we had discovered this winery years ago!
Aug 2021 • Family
Wish we had discovered this winery years ago!! We booked the Hands On Harvest Tour. What fun!! We had a chance to visit with the animals, and zipped around the property in the back of a vintage pick up truck. We learned so much about the area, and had an opportunity to pick strawberries and apricots. Back at the winery we enjoyed a wine tasting and delicious charcuterie board. We didn't participate but they had an amazing slip and slide and a giant jumping pillow. This was the most laid back, yet classy, but also super fun winery I have ever visited!

Wedding Day to Remember
Jul 2021
I cannot say enough amazing things about Covert Farms! My partner and I got married on July 31st at Covert and the venue is so beautiful. It is perfectly rustic and has all the right elements for a really fun event. We had to reschedule due to Covid and Shelly was so flexible for us and accommodated us for the next year. We were able to make a lot of adjustments with ease. Covert Farms is a special place for everyone, and the venue made our guests feel relaxed, at ease, and kept the busy with fun games and wine tasting, etc.! We were able to do a fun tour of the farm with our wedding party for photos and we had such a blast. We stayed at the guest house for the evening and it was so relaxed and perfectly equipped.

We are so grateful for Covert Farms and the Covert Family for hosting us. Their passion and love of their property is so apparent! They will welcome you like you are family!

Our Favourite Place in the South Okanagan
Jul 2021
I can't say enough good things about Covert Farms. We make a point of visiting the farm and winery every time we're in the area, and can't get enough of this incredible spot. The Wine Enthusiast and Hands on Harvest Tours are a must-do for anyone who wants a unique experience - I've never enjoyed a tour so much before (and I've done many!). You'll get a chance to tour their estate, learn about their farming practices, and enjoy some truly incredible scenery. Both tours are family friendly (we love taking our son), and finish with an amazing tasting experience with 7 wines and a beautiful cheese and charcuterie board. If you don't have a full 2 hours to spend, definitely opt for the Epicurean Tasting experience - it's one of the best deals in the Okanagan.

We also love bringing our little one here - he can't get enough of the farm animals, and he absolutely loved his juice tasting experience! This has to be the most family-friendly winery I've ever been to, and needless to say we just love it.

Covert wedding
Jul 2021 • Friends
Held our daughter’s wedding here last weekend and cannot say enough good things about Covert! It had to be rescheduled due to Covid and Shelly was always reassuring and accommodating.
The ceremony site is beautiful and the reception site lovely and very well maintained. We had guests of all ages and there was something for everyone. The games,trampoline and slip and slide were so much fun for the younger guests(and some of the older ones!) and the charcuterie and wine tasting prior to dinner were well received!
We made use of the pool house to get ready for the wedding and it was perfect. The red truck used to drive the bride to the ceremony made for some great photo opportunities.
Their friendly and efficient staff made this event truly one to remember ! Would highly recommend!

Great tasting experience at an amazing location
Jul 2021 • Couples
We had the pleasure of experiencing Covert farms this July. Gerold was our host and guided us through a great selection of wines and paired cheeses.
The wines were impressive, but more so was the farm/winery’s approach to sustainable farming. By the en dog the experience, we understood the Covert family approach to wine making, farming and how to be good shepherds of the land.
The location is beautiful and like the activities they have built in to the experience.
My life loved the curly orange piglets and I had fun on the air pillow (for an old guy)!
Definitely on our list of best places in Oliver.

Wow wow wow!! I cannot say enough how wonderful the farm tour and wine tasting was lead by our host Kristi!! She was amazing and so knowledgeable about the farm. And the wine!! Learning about regenerative farming was so interesting. I will definitely be coming back in the fall just in time for the grape harvest. If you are in the Oliver area, this is a must see stop!!
